to be a powerful nation on the earth has decided to take powerful action against the weakest, most vulnerable individuals on the earth. and those are children without families. it makes no sense whatsoever for the country of russia to take the action that they did, because they're in a disagreement with us here in america, and maybe others around the world, about human rights violations regarding adults. the russian government in front of the whole world has taken that out, their anger and frustration, on their own children. their own children, who are orphans, their own children who are sick, their own children who in some cases are disabled. it makes no sense in the world. i was trying to thank, the senator from missouri, what would ever possess the united states of america or any country to take their anger and frustrations out on children. and that's what the duma did. and so they are hurting their own children and we would like to urge them strongly in this resolution, which i'm going to submit for its immediate consideration on my behalf and senator blunt and senator inhofe, we would li

are standing by for a conversation on what happened and why to cuss what it means to take meaningful action, that's president obama's phrase and a shattering moment of mindlessness. >>> the latest on the investigation, brian ross our chief investigative correspondent and, brian, investigators are beginning to piece together what happened in that terrifying ten minutes in the school. >> that's right, george, they say they are making good progress in knowing much of the how, although less of the why of the stunning crime. in particular, they are focusing on the weapons used, there were three weapons recovered, two handguns and a semiautomatic assault-style rifle that authorities believe was owned actually by adam lanza's mother, nancy. her friends say she was a gun enthusiast who bought the weapons for self-defense when she was divorced and lived in a large home by herself and often took her sons, her friends say, to a nearby firing range for target practice. >> so they confirm that the weapons belonged to her, but there had also been some reports, at least one in the "l.a. times" that the sh
as possible, moving down that path is the right course of action for us. >> what boehner is proposing is extending bush tax cuts for everybody that makes less than $1 million a year. they say that will take the threat of tax increases off the table for most americans. but the white house and democrats up here on capitol hill have already rejected that option, guys. we're sort of at a little stalemate for this hour, maybe the next. >> there is some talking going on evidently. let's take you deeper inside the new proposals on the table, show you the differences. our senior economics reporter steve liesman has the fiscal clifferences. >> we're only going to do revenue. we're not going to do spending. come back tomorrow and hopefully get more spending. let's just do revenue. it's enough. >> clifferences. >> the first thing here, let's look at tax increases. what we understand with the new proposal of obama to raise tacks on those making $400,000 and higher, that would raise $600 billion in revenue. we believe the revenue side from the gop is $460 billion. just a warning on the gop. not ge
recommends at this time no disciplinary action. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on capitol hill with more on this. catherine, in the last hour we have some brand new reaction to this report. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right, jenna. first of all the report concludes there was no protest prior to the attack. that al qaeda is not dead. it has metastasized. that its followers have a new home in eastern libya. and that the benghazi on 9/11 was a significant defeat for the united states. it killed 4:00 americans including our ambassador. it also shuttered our diplomatic security presence in eastern lib. >> as well as a sizable cia operation. within the last hour a senior democrat at the closed classified briefing said there were systemic failures at seniors levels of the state department. >> i think the conclusion was very stark, very candid, very honest and told us the following. the mistakes were made, lives were lost and lessons need to be learned. first america can not retreat from a dangerous world. it is important for us to be there, to
. john harwood has the details. what's going on? >> not a whole lot of actions going on. although there have been some developments. let me bring our viewers up to date on those. first of all, treasury secretary geithner this afternoon announced the united states would hit the statutory debt limit on monday. that's new year's eve. that's part of an effort to pressure congress to act to raise the debt limit which may or may not be direct limb reply indicated in the fiscal cliff talks but it is relevant to the larger issue of debt and deficits. the treasury can move money around in certain ways to extend the point where we actually reach a crisis for probably a couple of months. but this is an early warning sign. secondly, republicans in the house sent word to democrats in the senate, white house, it is your turn now. we acted to put off the fiscal cliff several months ago with a bill that without objection tend all of those bush tax rates into the future and would turn off the sequester by switching defense cuts over to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of d
, there's no action on capitol hill. will that change by the end of the year? tonight, two congressmen come "outfront" to talk specifics. plus, arizona's attorney general backs a plan reminiscent of the nra to arm school principles. does more guns in schools begin to add up? and the biggest political fumbles. the best of the worst from our politicians. >>> i'm in for erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, christmas is over. washington get back to work. the countdown is on. the clock is ticking. you've got six days to prevent this country from going over the fiscal cliff and today at least, we didn't see any action. nothing. nothing, nada. now, i'm not trying to be a grinch here. i hope everyone's had a merry, merry christmas. just like the president prescribed. >> drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols. >> but today's the 26th. you've drunk, you eaten and you've sung. now is the time for action. the latest news out of washington tonight, treasury secretary tim geithner told congress that the country will hit the debt ceiling on december 31st, new year's e
children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> as much as we think of this issue as a political untouchable, not the tragedy itself, but policy to prevent yet another tragedy like this. as much as we think of this as a subject that cannot be discussed in washington, president obama has spoken to this issue before today. he has been called to speak to it mostly in response to tragedies like today. but when you look at his remarks combined over time in full, it's just a remarkable chronicle of not just what he has said. what he said must be done. but it is a remarkable chronicle of what has not yet been done. >> it is part of our nature to demand explanations, to try to impose some order on the chaos, to make sense out of that which seems senseless. already we've seen the national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. and much -- much of this process of
weapons in recent days. now, secretary of state, hillary clinton says the united states will take action if they release those chemical weapons on their people. >> this is a red line for the united states, we have made that clear. there is in doubt there is a line between even the horrors they have already inflicted and moving to what would be an internationally con telled step of utilizing their chemical weapons. >>shepard: syria could have several hundred ballistic missiles in their arsenal, capable of carrying chemical warheads. the united nations is pulling all of their "nonessential international staff" from syria as fighting intensifies in damascus. this is amateur video that reportedly shows violent airstrikes in a suburb but fox news cannot confirm the. >> -- confirm the the authencity. hillary clinton was not clear about what the red line would be? >>reporter: that is right. for the talk about a "red line" is seen as crossing, officials are being vague about the actions by the americans that it would trigger. >> we think it is important to prepare if contingency planning. we are

action for all kinds of securities. look at a previous swing in the stock or index and apply the ratios, and the result is usually an important level for that security. brodin likes to look for clusters of fibonacci relationships, and we have a group of three, 1436 to 1446, which is why this is so important. a retracement of a previous swing, 100% price projection of another swing, and if it would be symmetrical to a previous move. to brodin's way of thinking, these three levels clustered together create a strong ceiling of resistance, and the s & p has to wait to jump the hurdle. now, we failed to jump the hurdle yesterday. yesterday was significant, and negative. so brodin expected to see the kind of pullback we got today before we tried to test the resistance level again. fortunately, s & p has a floor of support created by another cluster of relationships, and this floor is at 1414. okay. just a couple points below where the s & p went out today. as long as we stay above, the path of least resistance is higher, and today, even if the ugliness, the floor held. what does that tell you

own. we have to come together, and we're going to have to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening regardless of politics. >> in that aurora theater last july a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle with a 100-barrel magazine, a shotgun and pistol went on a rampage killing 12 and wounding 58. shortly afterwards colorado's governor said stricter gun laws would not have helped. >> if there were no assault weapons available, if there were no this or that, this guy is going to find something and know how to create a bomb. >> he seemed different in an interview last wednesday, two full days before the events here in connecticut. when you look at what happened in aurora, the governor said, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the ar-15 rifle. i think we need to have that discussion and say, where is this appropriate? joining any now is the governor of colorado, john hickenlooper. thank you for joining us today. i think that things are so fresh here in connecticut, but you have been dealing for several months with the aftermath of
in settlement of a class-action lawsuit taken out against the company by u.s. car drivers. there was a mass recall. the deal will cover the cost of installing a free break override system and millions of vehicles affected by that recall and cash payments to those who sold their vehicles or decide to say no to the break override system. you'll remember toyota has had several problems of the past 18 months or so. it looks like it is agreeing to pay $1.1 billion to settle a class-action -- that is an american legal concept which has spread where all the people affected by the same problem get together and they go through the american legal system. we will get more on that as soon as we can. within the last few hours, the former south african president, nelson mandela, has been discharged from hospital. he spent several weeks and treatment. he also had an operation to remove gall stones. he was in good spirits when visited by the current president on christmas day. a statement said that he would receive home-based care at his residence in johannesburg. storms have battered large areas of the un

as a country and help them take action. and all they're asking for is rationality. how many among us would say it is okay to have 100 rounds of clips in a banana, that is just not rationale, they're talking about people with the opportunity to take away massive, massive amounts of loss. and i think reasonable people will say that is something we can get behind. and thank you, president obama for being clear you are going to take action and you need our help. but it is not just about the guns. i tell you, on my program, we're getting deep with what to do about people and family members, people with mental illness that are out of control. there is woeful resources in our country, people cannot get conservativeship. there is no state hospital or structure. and i would say president obama please, please, there is so much more to be done here than just guns. and this is our opportunity, and connecticut is just a symptom. >> and the president made it clear, he agrees with you. it is not just guns that are an issue, even though he did say you have to deal with military type assault weapons, high-capa

thing that stood out about his comments, chris, he talked about the need for meaningful action, saying it is necessary regardless of the politics. he didn't go into details today. i expect during the coming days and weeks, we will learn a little bit more about what he meant specifically about meaningful action. the last time he talked about gun control and this type of issue were in the days after that horrible shooting in aur a aurora, colorado. i'm going to read you a little portion of that speech because it fleshes out what was behind his words today. the president saying he believes in the second amendment. but i also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that a.k. 47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. that they belong on the battlefield of war. i believe the majority of gun owners would believe that we should do everything possible. that a mentally unbalanced individual should not be able to get his hands on a gun so easily. so those are some of the policy issues, i think, that are behind those words that he made today. and, again, we expect t
and for our entire economy. but the hour for immediate action is here. it is now. >> the president correctly says the time for immediate action is now. apparently not his immediate action, though, with the nation facing a crippling fiscal cliff in just three days, the president calls congressional leaders together and says, you fix it. no, he doesn't offer any new plan from the white house, no compromise. instead the president tells the senate to come up with a deal and the same senate that hasn't passed a budget in years. and the marks don't like it at all, 158 points now tanking and falling further in the after market and we'll have to see how asia opens on monday. it could be ugly. the headlines are falling fast and furious. we're all over it "the kudlow report" starts right now. >>> welcome. i'm michelle caruso-cabrera in for larry kudlow. a lot happened in just the last couple of hours. >> michelle, there's considerably more optimism after the white house meeting between the president and the four bipartisan leaders than there was earlier in the day. mitch mcconnell and harry reid say t

and take into actions that she did, that shooter had the capability of killing much more in this tragedy would have been far worse if it wasn't for her heroic actions, so, i think that that loss certainly is extremely heart felt and we're saddened, but in the other instance, it gives me great pleasure to know that she did what she was supposed to do and when we talk about these types of things, in our wildest dreams did we ever think that the conversation that her and i actually had would unfold into reality and then causing the loss of her life. she's truly a hero today. >> dave: we mention you're the first selectmen in woodbury and how is your community coming together around this tragedy? >> the first thing when this was unfolding was sheer shock and then it was horror and then it goes into heart break and as a community, we're coming together and we're all talking, we're grieving and trying to make some sense of the senseless and we're strong, we're a small community and we'll come together and get through this. >> dave: is there anything you need? i think so many people ask us what
between tragedy and action. the triangle shirt factory and workers laws. obviously what happened in 9/11 and the entire regime that's been put into place. i thought about this when i saw this clip, one of our producers found from robert strange who runs a security firm talking to fox, take a look. >> you know, i have two kids now i suddenly want to see an armed police officer in the school. i never thought of that prior to now. what would that take to have an armed police officer in every school? >> unfortunately, i think we just saw it. i think we just saw it. i think it's going to change the way we look the athings. i think this is going to be for schools what 9/11 is for airports. >> this will be for schools what 9/11 is to airports. i want to get your thoughts on that, how we think about security, particularly in the wake of this after this break. at first, jake's family thought they saved ziggy, but his connection with jake has been a lifesaver. for a love this strong, his family only feeds him iams. compared to other leading brands, it has 50% more animal protein... ...to help k
says action is needed. "ere's the store in "usa today -- and the headline of the "washington times" -- mayor michael bloomberg of new york was on meet the press yesterday. here's his perspective on whether the congress and the president should act. [video clip] >> if you stop people who have psychiatric problems, who have criminal records, substance abuse problems, if you stop every one of them from buying a gun, i cannot promise this articular event would not have taken place, but this particular event is just one of a series that happens again and again. a big chunk of those would have [indiscernible]. it's like saying there's no reason to have speed limits. if congress were to act, if congress were not so afraid of the nra, if they were to stand up and do what's right for the american public, we would all be a lot better off. host: mayor michael bloomberg yesterday. our question for you is whether gun laws should change? the wall street journal as the deadline-- -- headline -- now allison from trenton on our independent line. caller: 1 question to be answered is whether or not a
-- >> uh-huh. megyn: -- in the absence of any command action to do the same could leave an objective observer feeling that the judge was not impartial. now, this is him, by the way, before he got charged with murder. you can see how important it was for him to have his beard before he got charged with murder. suddenly things changed once you have to be identified in court by the witnesses who say they saw you shoot and kill 13 people. but why -- is that true? were there no command action to him by his superiors in the military to shave the thing? >> no, that's the interesting nugget in all of this, is if it really is the responsibility -- which it is -- of the command and not the court to insure that he shaves his beard, then who's that commander? he didn't immediately move on forcing those standards. as you mentioned, this was not something he was doing in 2009, 2010 or 2011. just recently decided to do it as part of his delay in protest. you're a lawyer, i'm not, megyn, but i know a truism of defense attorneys is if the facts are against you, argue the law. if the law's against you
director of the brady center's legal action project. welcome, both. i'm so glad you could come here to talk about this. dan gross, this goes all the way back with me. i covered the reagan years, known jim and sarah brady, so there's an issue here, and we're not talking about second amendment rights, but we're talking about reasonable background checks. what is the state of play right now? >> the state of play, you know, we're incredibly optimistic, because very clearly after you see the mass tragedies happen, this is a conversation that the american public wants to have. the american public knows that as a nation we are better than this. not only are we better than a nation with mass shootings and movie theaters and schools and places of worship, but we're also better that than a nation that loses 32 people to gun murders every day, and the reality is there are things, as you have pointed out, that we all agree on that have nothing to do with the second amendment that can prevent these tragedies from happening. a big one of those things is doing something about the 40% of all gun sales in t
incident ongoing active shooter we take immediate action. we know that lives are at stake and if there's an immediate, our officers are told to gather and engage. >>reporter: but in terms of what schools can did to prevent violence. every administrator we contacted echoed what superintendent core saichltd i will tell you the single greatest security system you can have if place is a well informed enabled student body that is going to notice something and tell an adult. >>reporter: as superintendent says if somebody is really intense really motivated to cause harm chances are he will find way to do it. so awareness really is the front-line of any security pla plan. police will tell you that and that's what students are told during these drills. this is abc 7 news. >> it has been a difficult day. you can express condolence to those touched by the school tragedy on the face book paichbility invite to you share your thoughts at facebook.com slash abc 7 news. maybe there's a comment would you like to make bit. also post this badge to your face book wall. silent show of support for e
. we will talk about the actions of the teachers. we will get into discussion about gun-control. that always seems to come up after situations like this. we would like for you to get involved in the conversation. the numbers are on the screen. we want to hear from teachers and people who work in the classrooms, principals and vice principals, people connected with education to find your thoughts on what happened yesterday. the actions of the teachers. how safe are in america's schools and america's schoolchildren. this is how the story is being played this morning on the front page of the "new york daily news." this is the way it is being reported this morning in "the wall street journal." the president talked about the shootings at the elementary school calling it a hate crime and vowing to press for meaningful actions to prevent more incidents. our first call for the morning comes from new york on the line for independence. a teacher. good morning. caller: good morning. yes, i was a substitute teacher actually up an east strasbourg it. i can tell you that the respect a
and humanly and naturally possible. later that day i wandered down to the cemetery with the famous mr. action epitaph and realized quite by accident the last place on the mountain where the sun shines is his grave. so it is so like jefferson to soak up every last hour every moment of energy and a flight. so what do we make of this man who was so eager to increase the day to enjoy it and to endure as long as he did? - we have to see him for what he was. he was a working politician. here is what george washington wrote to jefferson and hamilton and they're relatively rough early days in the cabin at in the 79 peace wendi as jefferson put we were put in the cabinet like cops at each other's throats. here's washington. however unfortunate while we are encompassed on all sides with avowed enemies and insidious trends that internal dissensions should be hearing and tearing our titles. harrowing and tearing our titles it's a very vivid phrase jon adams in the same era said jefferson's mind is poisoned with passion, prejudice and faction. hamilton said of jefferson this is how well it worked, hamilto
with president obama's call to action against what he calls the national epidemic of gun violence amid the trauma over the newtown school massacre, he has put vice president biden in charge of the agenda that could be submitted to congress next month. and a growing number of americans want action from the government. a brand new poll shows that 52% of u.s. adult dults favor major restrictions on guns, making all guns illegal versus 47% last august. let's turn to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's joining us. the president came out and didn't mince very words. >> reporter: no, wolf. this is the first time that president obama has laid out a time line. he appointed vice president biden to lead this group of cabinet lawmakers to come out with some solutions and he wants those recommends from him no later than january. the president said this time washington won't just talk about tackling gun violence. >> this is not some washington commission. this is not something where folks are going to be studying the issue for six months and publishing a report that gets read and then pushed as
move beyond dialogue. we need action. martha: a lot of conversations along those lines in the last couple days. at a vigil in washington for the victims at sandy hook elementary, connecticut congresswoman and democrat rosa delora, say reasonable people need to come together to find screenable ways to prevent gun violence. here she is. >> we who serve in this institution need to take steps that are going to insure that these tragedies will not happen again. like insuring better access to quality mental health care, and yes, i belief in strengthening our gun control laws. martha: democrat frank lautenberg and dianne feinstein saying in the next congress they will reintroduce the bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. lots more to be said about all of that. bill: talk of renewing gun control debate sends sale of firearms soaring. gun store owners said they see increased sale for ammunition which is some say is easier to ban than the weapons themselves. some stores reporting busiest days they have seen in years. >> big-time, friday and saturday especially the place was ju
mobile app. >>> the first class action lawsuit has been filed as a result of instagram's proposed terms of service change that would have allowed the social media company to sell users' photos without permission for advertising and the idea created a big backlash that forced the company to apologize and make about an about face. >> if instagram is not going forward with these plans, why the lawsuit? taking us through this is roy choy, managing editor at technobuffalo. that's the question i've had all along. they backtracked big-time when there was this backlash and yet we still have a class action lawsuit being brought. does it have any merit, do you think? >> i think it has absolutely no merit. i think it's a frivolous lawsuit. look for a bunch of attorneys that are looking to get their name out there in privacy law. >> do you think it's going to be dropped then? >> i definitely do think so. i think the only change that is really substantial at this moment is -- you can't take instagram to a court of law outside of a class action lawsuit. they have instituted a -- an arbitration system
meetings across the country, and then people taking action and going to their legislators and saying, we want these laws changed. >> i want to bring in a woman after this break who shot and killed an attacker in her church. you'll be surprised to hear what she says about civilians being armed with guns. remember, you can send a question on twitter hash tag guns in america. getting a huge reaction as you can imagine. not everyone agrees with what i believe about this, but many do too. we'll talk after the break. i'm doing my own sleep study. advil pm® or tylenol pm. the advil pm® guy is spending less time lying awake with annoying aches and pains and more time asleep. advil pm®. the difference is a better night's sleep. with annoying aches and pains and more time asleep. well, it's that time of year again. you know, picture-taking season. and with photo stream, you can share all the photos you want, with just the people you want. it's as easy as pie. mmmm .. pie. hurry in and try five succulent entrees, like our tender snow crab paired with savory garlic shrimp. just $12.99. come into
on the streets, in the churches, are saying to me, we need to do something. it is a call to action. >> and do you feel that same call to action? because we've had a lot of these. i mean there was a young girl that died in tucson in the gabby giffords shooting, a lot of people that died, but a 9-year-old i think that died in that. we had a baby killed in the aurora theater. and this is sort of horrific beyond imagination because there's so many young people. we've heard this before. and there is -- you know, there are people saying wait a minute, can we not do anything just as a knee-jerk reaction, we need to think this through. >> the tipping point on these issues whether it's taking on assault weapons or providing more comprehensive mental health or addressing the sort of culture of violence that prompts somebody to do something like this, the tipping point should have happened a long time ago. if this is the tipping point, then we're going to go down to washington and prompt a conversation that's long overdue. you know, a young man grabbed us in his church we were in sobbing saying, don't let t
connell is speaking to the president. if the senate is going to be the place where action starts, you need both of them there. and the second reason for optimism is boehner is back at the table because you can't pass something just through the senate. >> this afternoon's meeting feels much to me like optics to make it look like we're doing something but let me just say one more time, this is a total dereliction of duty at every level. i have been very surprised that the president has not laid out a very specific plan to deal with this, but candidly, congress could have done the same, and i think the american people should be disgusted. >> but let's be optimistic for a minute. let's say a deal is done. do you think that republicans can sell this to either their base or to the house at least as a tax cut, not a rise in taxes? >> chuck schumer brought up a good point. a key moment of these entire negotiations came on wednesday night when president obama calls mitch mcconnell, bring the republican leader in the process. what happens now is very important. as sam said, they'll be negotiating today a
a crisis. a trillion dollar deficit and not enough to force action. we still pay very little interest and the interest bill is shrinking. the primary deficit that we run up every year has been shrinking for two years straight and will shrink a lot if we go over the fiscal cliff. i am not in the absence of a crisis. >> looking at what boehner just did, obama will be blame for the highest increase in history. i'm not optimistic that we are going to go over the cliff. it seems that way. baner and the gop are highly unpopular and 11% approval rate. obama is very popular. 57% from cbs and 54% from abc. is boehner correct that the president will get blamed for the tax increase. they trust the way the president is dealing and don't trust the way the gop is dealing. >> that's the first time boehner and drop the mike have been used. >> that's right. >> leave it to him. >> i think the great challenge for obama is he wants consensus and they want to sign on to a tax increase and whatever deal and not run against it. they will sign on to something and run against it anyway. they at of them who vo
, meaningful action. the president and the president chooses his words very carefully. what do you think he means by meaningful action? >> well, this is the first time the -- he said he would do something in the wake of these horrible tragedies. so i think he put down a pledge to only -- only way to take sit he's going the look for some kind of a change in gun law. now we know that he -- i don't want to get lawyeresque on you and say, you know, but when you say meaningful action we can take a common sense plain reading of it that obama who has been very reluctant to do anything on the gun control issue is ready to do something. >> what are you hearing from lawmakers in d.c.? specifically perhaps lawmakers from the right. is there a -- different mood there at this point? >> well, we have heard the comments that we have heard after all of these other mass shoot things year which is we have to be careful about rushing to judgment. we have to be careful about necessarily enacting new gun laws. perhaps this is a broader issue about mental health or issues with the family. i spoke yesterday with
